ATSF steam engine number boards and decals are available from www.atsfnscalemodels.com.
See the website for more info under CURRENT PROJECTS (and then the latest topic) and under PICTURES.

The number boards come in 5 different sizes to fit the handrails of existing steam locomotives (see pictures below and description on website).
The decals are  printed in STENCIL GOTHIC (as close to prototype as I could find) on an ALPS printer and should be treated just like Microscale decals (28 different engine numbers with 6 identical numbers each).
Engine numbers 664, 1524, 1627, 1790, 2522, 2531, 3197, 3412, 3420, 3440, 3458, 3460, 3465, 3733, 3768, 3784, 3808, 3825, 3909, 3932, 4001, 4010, 4039, 4196, 4197, 5001, 5011 and 9446 to fit a variety of plastic and brass engines.   

Number boards are $1 a piece, 1 decal sheet will all numbers is $4. For ordering and mailing see the website.
A Word document looking like the decal sheet is included to make identification of the different numbers very easy

Dirk, that is excellent, expect an order soon.
A question though: I assume the number boards are 3D printed...what are the attachment bars made of?
Thanks,
 Otto

Hi Otto,

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Check the picture.
I should have explained I realize....

The base is etched phosphor bronze and the boxes are Evergreen styrene strip AACed on top.
Then cleaned, primed and painted glossy black for easy decalling.

Bending and adjusting the bands between the boxes and the supports is easy and quite forgiving.
The whole setup is very sturdy once installed.
